Women's Suburban League Teams
Canterbury Recreation Association members are encouraged to join one of our women's teams that participate in the Richmond Suburban Tennis League. This is a fun but competitive league that includes a number of area clubs. We have two levels of play, so there is a place for everyone! If you are new to tennis, we have a beginning “C” team. For the more experienced player, we also have the “A” advanced team.
The spring season begins in April and runs for seven weeks and the fall season begins in September and runs for seven weeks. Each team participates in practices and clinics as agreed upon by the team. If you are interested in joining a team or would like more information, please contact CRA Tennis Chair, Janice Reynolds, at email@example.com.
The men’s teams plays on Saturday morning in the Richmond Racquet League. Matches start in April, so don’t delay in getting in touch with either James or John!
